Pros

You are able to serve kids who need mentors and advocates. There are many opportunities to work with at risk youth.

Cons

Management is arbitrary and capricious. There is little recognition and the working conditions are poor. The non profits are run by a for profit which is a bad situation. Raises are arbitrary, salary is about half that of other teachers or adminstrators and poor leaders are often left in charge because competant ones leave. Coorporate staff are out of the loop when it comes to day to day issue on the job and job performance of specific employees (good and bad)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of your employes strengths and value them.

    I have been working at The Menta Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall good environment to work in. It is easy to feel supported by administrators and staff around you. I like that ideas and opinions are taken seriously, even if it is from an entry-level employee. There's definitely a sense of community within the organization. If you put in hard work and they feel you are capable, they will help pay for further education.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are disconnects between schools and administrators which causes confusion among staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on being involved. it means a lot to see administrators in the building being supportive and engaged.

    Pros

    Everyone is a family in this place, when there are issues they are addressed and handled. There is always a helping hand when a situation occurs. Good job security, if you're willing to put everything you have into the job/career, you are definitely noticed. Will absolutely fall in love with the kids, especially the lifeskills students, they're an absolute blast. It is a challenging job but at the same time the challenge doesn't compare to what the rewards are. Watching a student improve in academics is one of the most accomplishing feelings in the world. To show students a world they never thought in a million years they would see is also an amazing feeling, as well as making a difference in a child's life that no other teacher could do. There's always someone in the school where you can change their lives for the better. An absolute all around great program and put into place for all the right reasons.

    Cons

    The students are challenging, in my eyes that's a good thing though because the more challenging the more opportunities you have to make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for all you do and thank you for putting all the hard work that the kids deserve just so they have an opportunity to have a change in their lives.
